Gpredict is a real time satellite tracking and orbit prediction program for the Linux desktop. It uses the SGP4/SDP4 propagation algorithms together with NORAD two-line element sets (TLE).

Some core features of Gpredict include:

* Tracking of a large number of satellites only limited by the physical
memory and processing power of the computer
* Display the tracking data in lists, maps, polar plots and any combination
of these
* Have many modules open at the same either in a notebook or in their own
windows. The modules can also run in full-screen mode
* You can use many ground stations
* Predict upcoming passes
* Gpredict can run in real-time, simulated real-time (fast forward and
backward), and manual time control
* Detailed information both the real time and non-real time modes
* Doppler tuning of radios via Hamlib rigctld
* Antenna rotator control via Hamlib rotctld
